No calories counts here, I just whipped this up and it ended up getting great feedback! In no way am I trying to rival my Mama Wendy’s famous banana pudding, but this was a decent attempt at being Southern in a short amount of time and on a budget. Easy party pleaser!
Banana Pudding Pie
- Nilla wafers
- 2 Bananas
- 2 small packages of instant pudding mix (I did vanilla and cheesecake)
- 4 cups milk (I used 2%, though I’d usually use skim)
- Prepare 1 pudding according to the package directions. Let set for a couple minutes. This will be the top pudding. (KWad tip: For the top pudding, if you want it a little thicker, just decrease the amount of milk to 1.5 or 1.75 cups)
- Take a pie tin and cover the bottom with a layer of Nilla wafers. They should be touching but not overlapping.
- Crush up some more Nilla wafers and sprinkle them in the empty spaces. Sprinkle some cinnamon atop your Nilla wafer foundation.
- Slice up your bananas and put a layer on top of your Nillas.
- Prepare the second pudding according to the package directions. Pour over your Nillas and banana slices. Spread evenly.
- Make another Nilla layer and add another banana layer on top. Crumble some more Nillas mixed with cinnamon and sprinkle on top of Nilla/banana layer.
- Take the remaining pudding and spoon it on top, still leaving some Nillas and bananas on the edges for presentation.
- Garnish with additional banana slices or Nilla wafers. Let set in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours. Serves 8.
